lights the project to the obama administration. the new route would minimize the impact on the environment and stimulate the economy. the state department has to approve the project since it crosses the international border with canada. the pipeline's future is still in doubt. john boehner in a statement said nebraska's approval of the new keystone xl pipeline route means there's no bureaucratic excuse, hurdle or catch president obama can use to delay the project any further. he and he alone stands in the way of tens of thousands of new jobs and energy security. the obama administration pushed back a decision on the project until after march. >>> according to some commit polling, benjamin netanyahu and his political allies have won election in tuesday's israeli elections. he will get a third term as president but his power is diminished after his party lost about 11 seats. >>> also overseas this morning, british prime minister david cameron made a critical speech on the uk's rocky relationship with the eu. cameron proposed a bold referendum to allow british voters to dec
recommendation of the joint chiefs of staff, the obama administration will announce formally tomorrow that the ban on women in combat is over. they had been making some progress in this direction, recently opening up the special operations aviation command to female pilots, and last year opening uabout 14,000 positions in the military that had been previously off limits to women. but this announcement could open up 230,000 new jobs to women over the course of the next year. the various service branches will make their own plans for how to do it. if there are individual specific jobs that they still want exempt for women, that they want exempt from this new policy, the service chiefs can ask for that. but that will not be the expectation. the priority, of course, is still military readiness and combat effectiveness above all. but they are making this move, starting tomorrow, to make serving equally recognized, equally. to clear the way for women in combat. joining us now is one of the women whose legal case on this issue may have helped push the military to this decision. she is captai
political advantage over the obama administration, over hillary clinton in particular over the attack in benghazi, what ended up looming unexpectedly large over these proceedings was how benghazi is not an unprecedented thing. the state department has had its personnel and its facilities in danger and facing different kinds of attack over and over and over and over again for decades all over the world. and the attempted political acrimony of today's hearing ended up kind of dead-ending today whenever secretary clinton would bring back what congress does not see as a priority does not see the safety that work at the state department and the resources to ensure that safety. and yes, there is a political agenda to be driven, always, always. but in terms of steps necessary to protect people, so far hillary clinton made the case today that congress has been against it. specifically right now, members of the republican-controlled house have been against it. >> we have asked the congress to help us real locate funds. the senate has given us that authority. we don't yet have it from the house
, very very few other people reported it basically telling the obama administration you have got to stop. that's what his own debt commission told him, you have got to stop, all right? he is not gonna stop. he is going continue to crease the spending. >> i don't know that that's going to be very possible in the short-term. >> bill: that's what he wants to do. maybe won't get through the house, but he wants to increase the spending rather than do what the gao recommends. >> i one of the things that you said in the president's speech yesterday and set up at the talking points at the top you said it will be impossible for him to do everything he wants to do. part of yesterday's speech recognizes that, instead what the president was doing was enunciating those principles for history. i think he knows that he has got a very difficult slog in this congress over the next four years, he wants to be able to say here is the goals, here is the direction i'm pointing in i don't know exactly what we can achieve but this is what we want to do. >> bill: i want my president to be a problem solver and i
's support to be rallied to achieve? >> i think ten years ago, even in the beginning of the obama administration, i think once he was elected, we all thought progressive president, good things are going to happen. then, mitch mcconnell and john boehner came and said stop. i think people just thought that will happen because we elected him. we learned that. the president learned it. i think msnbc learned it and congress and the public most importantly learned it. that this just doesn't happen because of an election. it happens because of an election and then it means going online, it means doing rallies, it means educating your neighbors at church and the workplace and in school. >> now, you're using the word takers in this speech, i mean going right after the right and a reminder of people what the election was about. i looked right across at paul ryan when he said it. i mean, given the republicans parties and their positions right now, can he get this agenda done? >> i think republicans sometimes look to the next election, too. and when they think about how the demographics are c
diligence vetting obama. maybe it comes from the fatigue from the vetting the bush administration for eight years and how difference the coverage was for president bush and the inauguration and other events. the trip down memory lanes and look at the coverage of president bush, the inauguration in 2005. what a difference. >> on world news tonight sunday, president bush prepares for his second inauguration. in a time of war and natural disaster, is it time for a lavish celebration. >> do you think the balls and some of the excess are appropriate or is it forgivable. >> many have wondered whether given the war and all of our security challenges right now, it's appropriate to have a lavish and expensive inaugural celebration. >> wow, somebody pinch me. is there any doubt how abusively biased the mainstream media is when it comes to barack obama? and joining me now with more of the over the top examples of media bias and the fawning over the president yesterday is none other than the president of the media research center we welcome back brother brent bozell, welcome back. >> how you doing, bro

of power, the transferns of power from the first term administration of president barack obama to his second term administration. the president was officially sworn in by chief justice john roberts yesterday at the blue room at the white house as the first lady and the obama daughters looked on. but in the little less than two hours the president will affirm that oath before a much larger crowd with 100% more pomp and an equal proportion of circumstance. we have a stellar group of guests joining us throughout the day. honestly, to cut to the chase, it is pretty much everybody you know from msnbc. plus, visits with some members of the obama administration, folks from congress, we'll have live reports from the capitol and all along the parade route. and who knows what surprises along the way. it will be a fun day. reverend al sharpton and chris hayes are joining us onset as the day goes along. alongside me are melissa maris perry, ed schultz and the one and only chris matthews. mr. matthews, this is, i think of this as chris christmas. >> i think of the alternative it could be today. jo
what may or may not happen in the middle east but it seems pretty clear the obama administration is moving more towards a strategy and tactics, a smaller footprint in the middle east, right, less intervention oriented and more strategic. if you look at the selections for his defense team, he's interested in prosecuting the war on terror in a very different way. at the end of the day, i hope the middle east works some of its issues out without a lot of u.s. intervention, but we can't predict what may or may not happen in the next four years in that region of the world. >> interesting because robert gibbs echos the sentiments james is sharing with regard to the time this president has. and robert says a year and a half at best to get something actually accomplished. it's sort of a myth when a president is re-elected. four more years. you hear the chants of people. not so much. >> two max i would think. >> i think probably the biggest potential disaster would be a terrorist attack in this country. why it hasn't happened since 9/11, i don't know. >> welet's hope it's vigilance. >> i
-mile project to the obama administration. the president has pushed back a decision on the project until after march, but the pipeline's future remains in doubt as president obama rejected a plan a year ago, you'll recall, saying the legislation didn't give enough time for the government to give it a thorough review. >> and you know, michael steele, we were talking this morning about how the republicans move forward in a more thoughtful, strategic way. still being tough. >> yeah. >> you can be tough. you can be conservative. you can still be smart. >> be smart. that's right. >> we haven't been smart. a guy who has been smart, chris christie. new quinnipiac poll numbers out this morning. i want you guys -- republicans, you can actually be conservative. you can actually fight, and you can actually win. listen to these numbers. chris christie's approval rating right now, 74% in new jersey. with a 21% disapproval. he's 56% approval rating among democrats, 78% among independents. and was governor christie right to criticize john boehner? 79% say yes. 15% say no. 70% of republicans say yes, th
two, the lowest since the eisenhower administration. >> i don't think ike liked natural balls anymore than president obama. >> do you like natural balls? >> no. they're miserable. >> there's another tradition i think we started here, the natural hangover coverage at our favorite watering hole. another fantastic crowd, hi, everybody! what are you doing awake? ion what to say. it's packed, the other room, too. >> i know. >> they are drinking like fish. >> i know. they are drunk already. of course, if you're a conservative this morning, you really want to be drinking and drinking hard. it's tuesday, january 22nd. with us on set we have msnbc contributor mike barnicle and msnbc political analyst and former chairman of the republican national party when there was a republican national party and al hunt and anchor for world news, america katty kay. the reviews are in. >> the reviews are in. >> it was a liberal speech for a liberal constituency. the left is saying that, the center is saying that and the right is saying that. the only thing i've seen all week since being here any progressive
of the administration's troubles flow from the top. obama is a lousy manager. this is the worst-kept secret in washington. every democratic senator has complained about how he never calls them he never reaches out. forget the republicans. the democrats say this. we've all heard it. we've heard it for four years. we've heard people that have been inside the white house running the white house saying it's been a dysfunctional place. how does a president turn that around and actually become an effective manager, become an effective president? >> i don't know. i don't know how he turns it around because -- >> is he capable? >> i think he is. clearly, his nature is to be for lack of a better phrase a bit reclusive in his presidency. >> this "sunday review" article says he's the most isolated president since richard nixon. this is "the new york times." the most isolated president since richard nixon. >> he's emotionally isolated i would think, from a large body of senators and congressmen. there's no doubt about that. i just want to get back to one second to where we were a cou
